Introduction
The Nords and Samis invented skiing aeons ago for transport, hunting and military action. Popular after World War II, skiing is now a Paralympic sport. Many adaptations include sit-skis, stabilisers and ski tip retention devices. There is a real ski kit brand called Ski Chalet. Issued in 2009 as alter ego to the Surf Shack.

Snowboarding
First inspired by skateboarding, surfing and skiing, it developed in the US in the late 1960-70s and became a Winter Olympic Sport in 1998. The board is attached to feet via special boots set in flexible binding. Winter sports venues were far quicker to adopt snowboarding than ski areas, but today 97% allow it - greatly boosting the economy of resorts. Many also have jumps, rails and half pipes for riders to perform tricks.
